Biographical/Historical Information

During a period of rapid area growth and development in the 1980s, the Montgomery County Planning Commission became aware of the need to preserve local historical and architectural landmarks. The commission applied for and received a matching grant from the Virginia Division of Historic Landmarks to complete a survey and inventory of such sites. The survey--headed by architect and project director Gibson Worsham-- published its results in Montgomery County Historic Sites Survey(1986, two volumes).
